H. Moser & Cie. is in a highly beneficial mode these days delivering a constant flow of new models – or declinations of existing watches. Think, in recent months, Blue Lagoon pieces , Heritage made with Bucherer , Perpetual Moon Concept or Pioneer Tourbillon . The last is really today’s subject. During Watches and Wonders in Miami, the brand presented new forms of its off-road watch – not a games watch essentially, but rather a watch made to endure a functioning way of life. Meet the new H. Moser & Cie. Pioneer Tourbillon and Center Seconds with a Red Gold/DLC Case and a mark Blue Fumé Dial.
What is the Pioneer? It’s H. Moser & Cie’s vision of a more vigorous, more tough, slightly easygoing piece. Don’t think it’s a genuine games watch either, despite the fact that the case is very much secured and comes with 120m water-opposition. The Pioneer is an easygoing watch that actually holds all the credits of Moser’s DNA. It simply adds a cool, not very conventional touch to the standard mark fumé dials, yet the mechanics, created and collected in-house, are still essential for the bundle as well. A blend of lovely mechanics and versatility for day by day mileage. And you can even have it with a tourbillon …
Already accessible in three renditions – 3-hand programmed, unending schedule and tourbillon programmed – with various materials (for the most part steel) and shadings (fumé in dim, in green or in blue), the brand presented new forms in Miami this end of the week that combine sumptuous metal and delightful colored dials.
Available in the programmed and in the tourbillon, these new forms highlight another case. It is produced using a combination of 5N red gold and dark DLC-finished titanium – the focal piece of the case is titanium and the two horizontal parts and the bezel are made of gold (a combination that can be valued when taking a gander at the carries and the caseback). The case is as yet water-impervious to 120m and these models are worn on punctured dark elastic lashes with a 5N red gold pin clasp (Center Seconds) or a collapsing fasten (Tourbillon). The crown is additionally DLC covered. Both watches have a rather enormous 42.8mm measurement, which remains comfortable thanks to short lugs.
Second update: the dials. To diverge from the warm shade of the 5N gold, H. Moser depends on its most symbolic dial, the fumé blue. These dials are finished first with a sunburst design and later painted with an angle tone – midnight blue in the middle and practically dark on the periphery. Records and hands match the gold case yet are as yet loaded up with glowing paint.
Two models have been introduced. The first is the “simple” programmed form, with a 3-hand (focal hours, minutes and seconds) show. This Pioneer Center Seconds is powered by the in-house self-winding HMC 200 development, with 3 days of force hold. It is fitted with the Straumann Hairspring and the brand’s interchangeable controlling organ. The finishing is charming, with Moser stripes and polished bevels.
The second model is the Pioneer Tourbillon – a watch that we’ve inspected as of late . This watch is an astounding combination of energetic components and Haute Horlogerie considering a tourbillon to be worn consistently. The in-house development, type HMC 804, is an advancement of the 3-hander seen previously. It is programmed, has a 3-day power hold and the unique twofold hairspring architecture and the brand’s interchangeable controlling organ. The embellishment is considerably more fragile and incorporates a 18k red gold wavering weight.
H. Moser & Cie. Pioneer Tourbillon and Center Seconds with Red Gold/DLC Case and Blue Fumé Dial are presently accessible and will be valued individually at USD 59,900 and USD 19,900. More subtleties at www.h-moser.com .
